Thankyou all for your kind messages I guess I’m just feeling sorry for myself, I really want to be at home with my family instead I’m stuck on a psychiatric ward 😩 I want out and there not letting me off at all haven’t been off in a week..
I feel for ya mate but you need to stabilise and if that means taking meds then go for it. We have nothing to lose if we go along with the process. I am treatment resistant and take meds like sweets. If they work they work but if they don't at least I have tried their way.
All the very best wishes and good luck to you. Think of this as a new chapter in your book of life. The time you start fighting back for a better future. Forza my friend fight.
They have give you the tools now you need to set about using them. If these meds don't help then role on round two.
I’m in the UK, yes. I’ve been in hospital four and a half months and it’s really starting to get me down.. I want my own bed, my own luxeries, my own fresh bedding (I’m seriously contemplating bringing in my own bedding to make it feel more homely!
It must be rubbish being in hospital over Christmas. But it is designed to help, so try really hard to look on the bright side. I know it is difficult. Think to yourself, I am going to kick the ass of this thing and I will start by not letting it get to me.
These mental illnesses are so cruel, at a time when strengths are low we are expected to find strength. I know it is hard.
Try looking up positive affirmations and just reading them. It is better than nothing and it will help, even if you don't think it is, your subconscious will absorb the positive phrases.
Quick update they’ve now put me on IM Lorazepam daily and if I refuse to take it they restrain me 😰 alongside my depot.. still not allowed off the ward even with staff and home leave is a big no! Ergh, have a review on the 2nd so fingers crossed for better news ..
